Canada's Biggest City
Toronto has a bigger population than any other city in the country, and is a cosmopolitan high-rise metropolis with a richly diverse cultural heritage. Located on the north shore of Lake Ontario, Toronto is the provincial capital of Ontario, and is also Canada's economic capital, playing host to the country’s leading financial and business institutions. The first European settlers arrived in the area around the mid 18th century and over the next two centuries the city became an increasingly important part of Canada’s cultural identity and economic growth. Now a high-rise city to rival New York, Toronto’s CN Tower stands over the city as its most famous landmark, and for 30 years held the record as the world's tallest freestanding structure. The sprawling metropolis below contains countless museums, galleries, cafés, restaurants and theatres, all contributing to the rich, diverse multi-cultural appeal of Toronto.
Toronto is a jumble of people and cultures from across the globe, creating a wonderfully diverse and architecturally magnificent city on a par with New York.

When to Go?
Toronto is most definitely best enjoyed during the summer when the temperature is warm enough to enjoy exploring the city on foot. Winter temperatures in Toronto plunge well into the minus numbers, so anyone particularly averse to the cold would do well to steer clear, although an excellent infrastructure means that many of the shopping malls and interesting places are in warm covered areas.
